I thought as a blog owner, I could do with my blog as I wish. I could post what I wanted, choose themes as I wish, follow blogs that I like, have a blogroll with who I want, etc. I'd like to know where the rules are that tell me how I have to run my blog.
And I thought the same would apply to a blog that was created for private exchanges. An exchange forum that you could have just a handful of selected people. Maybe people you know that are dependable and you can trust, people who don't have any any major obstacles such as health issues that highly restrict their stitching time and have been vocal about it, or people who are great stitchers and/or finishers or people who you know would definitely be interested in the type of exchange you are having. And including and not including certain people is not meant to hurt anyone.
Some think they can tell others differently. I didn't think I had to report to anyone as to why I run my blog(s) as I do. If you don't like something on my blog...don't read it. Simple as that.
I really hate to be vocal about this, but I have to get this out.
And since these people post about these things on their blogs, I don't think they are any better a person than anyone else.
That's it. Peace.
